Breakfast for Dinner

One of the most comforting things I know is a stack of pancakes, with butter and syrup. While they are always great, I like pancakes best at night.

Last night, following an afternoon of swimming with my girls; I put on some comfy pajamas and commenced to making breakfast for dinner. Eating a dinner of pancakes and sausage while dressed in my pajamas was a little bit of Heaven on a Tuesday night! I have leftover pancakes and sausage in the fridge, so all I have to do for a pancake and sausage breakfast this morning is to zap them in the microwave.

Other breakfast foods I love to have at night are: biscuits, BLT sandwiches, muffins, scrambled eggs and coffee cake. Anybody else love breakfast for dinner? If you see a breakfast recipe that feels just a bit too ambitious to pull off in the morning, don't throw it away; have it for dinner!

Here is my favorite pancake recipe:
2 cups of baking mix (such as Bisquick)
1 cup of milk
2 eggs
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
2 teaspoons of baking powder

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Spoon batter onto hot and greased griddle or skillet. Cook each side until done.

I LOVE breakfast for dinner! Biscuits and gravy is always a winner, and scrambled eggs and toast, and cheese and mushroom omelets.... Okay, now I'm hungry!
